president of the united states. >> geraldo: mr. romney is right about the national polls showle him tied with the incumbent president. with six weeks left in the campaign ras musten at 46% and gallup at 47% show the men in a statistical dead heat. big picture the real clear politics ten day moving average has the president up by about three points, 48.1% to 44.8%. this is the real story that a trails in budgetmy trails in the swing states. down by about 8 in virginia. six in florida and down about seven in ohio, tom? >> well, he is down in these swing states and certainly i think given all of the data that we have if the election were held today obama would win. the election isn't being held today. six weeks. four debates. two more jobs reports coming out. the libya thing is hanging over the administration's head moving forward. a lot of time left. you're right, obama is ahead in crucial swing states. ahead by about a point and a half or two in the real clear politics average. in florida, the two main states that obama is leading that romney really has to be concerned about are virginia
america. there's a united states of america. >> eight years after the keynote that launched his national career, four years after becoming the nation's first african-american nominee, tonight president barack obama accepts the nomination a second time. tonight the president makes his case for four more years. >> four more years. >> america needs four more years. >> tonight more from the first lady, vice president biden, caroline kennedy, the foo fighters? yes, the foo fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our colleague and friend chris matthews. you said o
and iran is able to defend itself. look for delegations like the united states to walk out once again as soon as he starts criticizing israel. bill: there were stunning comments from pakistan's president last night. what was spoken there, jonathan? >> reporter: this is pretty extraordinary, bill. it reported on fox report but appeared to slip under the radar for a lot of media outlets because it was one of the final speeches of the day. just hours after president obama at the same podium called for tolerance and called for leaders of the muslim world to outright condemn the violence against u.s. interests that we've seen over the past couple of weeks, the pakistani president walked up to that podium, failed utterly to issue any strong condemnation of the protest, instead called on the united nations to lead a charge to make illegal for anyone, anywhere including here in the united states, to insult the prophet muhammad. listen to this. >> you can never condone violence. the international community must not become silent observer and should criminalize such attacks that destroy the pea
of the united states off the ground. i'll talk to the man who did it. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with important news just in to "the situation room." our brand-new poll shows president obama receiving a significant bounce from the democratic national convention. he now leads mitt romney 52% to 46%. that's among likely voters nationwide. all this according to our brand-new cnn orc poll. let's get to our chief national correspondent, john king, over at the magic wall. >> a six-point national lead. the president benefited most from his convention. let's look deeper at the other numbers. let's look here -- here's one of the big reasons why. this is among men. the republicans almost always have a big advantage among men. the president, this is a tie essentially. the president with a one-point lead among men. but look at the difference. going into the democratic convention, it was governor romney who had a big lead a 12-point lead among men. that's one of the reasons the president comes out of his convention in much stronger shape. then you ask people who's best in
: well the united states and egypt are trying right now to feel each other out. it's kind of like an awkward first date, because before the revolution the muslim brotherhood was an adversary of sort of the united states and there was a lot of mistrust there. so, right now they're trying to build a relationship trying to come together, but the military the egyptian and the american military do have close ties, and this is one of the military officials in the united states said. >> ian lee, thank you. >>> now to libya, where authorities have announced four arrests -- >> and we continue to do so today. we look forward to continuing our bilateral defense relationship. as you know, the secretary recently visited egypt, had very productive discussions there with president morsi and others and our relationship with egypt we believe, is on the right track when it comes to our military ties. >> why not call them an ally? >> i don't think that we really need to get into semantics. i think i've said what i have said. >> reporter: diplomatic tensions may exist, but the
tells all about pakistan's spy agency. saying that pakistan's government hates the united states and only pretending to like us to get aid money. i guess we suspected it? >> i think what the doctor has focused on is the inner service intelligence service, isi, the arm of the military that helped arm the mujahedin, that helped create taliban. >> greta: and haqqani network? >> they have funded them for more than 20 years fighting the soviets. it's no surprise. i think isi hates the united states. the issue has been whether the radicals will take over the country and supply of nuclear weapons. >> greta: is the isi part of the rad kalsz? >> absolutely. >> greta: who is securing the nuclear weapons? >> not the isi. but there is no doubt to me that those weapons are incredibly vulnerable. that is why the strategy of the united states is to grit our teeth and talk to what is left of the civilian government and authority and to the military that are not radical and prevent this cancer from taking over. >> greta: thinking why are we giving this money, billions of dollars who people who ha
experience, i mean, right before that, with due respect to the president of the united states, he just had a couple in the united states senate and state legislator. i don't think that there is a material difference in experience on that front because the governor is chief executive of a state but also commander in chief. you have direct experience with how military works and bain capital covers the globe. you understand how international markets work. i think you can certainly pick out deficiency on the governor's side from the stand point of foreign policy. but understanding both markets and again, the political of having one branch under control and accountablity of that. >> steve: you know what governors do because you did in in south carolina. thank you for joining us. >> brian: coming up, keep your kid no, sir school or lose your welfare benefits. we'll debate it. >> steve: ladies, talking about the convertible high heel. >> brian: finally. >> steve: look at that. genious. ♪ then and i saw her face. i am a believer. ♪ and not a trace. a doubt in my mind. ♪ im in love. releas
. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and government actually working together to promote growth and broadly share prosperity. you see, we believe that we

on the side of the united states general assembly meetings that are happening over the next couple of days. i understand that she met with pakistan's leader later today. we saw some of the most egreejs and violent protests out of pakistan over the weekend. what does she hope to accomplish from that meeting? >> well, that's one of the problems. as these countries now, the arab spring countries, are going through changes, they can have severe difficulties in moving from a repressive regime that could be 40, 50 years old into what could be democracy or maybe not. that's some of the problem that is we're seeing right now. i would like to play some sound from the secretary because she referred to that dilemma between really not letting these revolutions get hijacked. let's listen to what she said. >> the people of the arab world did not set out to trade the tierney of the dictator for the tearany of a mob. there is no dignity in that. the people of benghazi -- in their midst and clee re-claimed the honor and dignity of a courageous city. they mourn the loss of ambassador chris stevens, a friend an

public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
a nuclear weapon. of course the united states and israel has gone back and forth when and if a strike is necessary. the united states secretary of state sat down with prime minister netanyahu yesterday for a meeting. that is not the meeting that the prime minister wanted. he did want to meet with president obama. requested a meeting. that was request was denied. the prime minister offered to fly to washington, d.c. today to meet with president obama. we learned he is spending much of the day at campaign events. back in israel, we look again at the newspaper. not all the reaction is positive. next to the prime minister drawing on the diagram of the bomb is a headline a little bit making fun of him saying bebe, the prime minister's nickname, boom. one headline down here. they have had a caricature of him as bugs bunny drawing on the same diagram, calling the diagram a cartoon. there is feeling among some, doing that at united nations holding up the diagram and drawing the red line was perhaps not fitting the prime minister of israel. gregg? gregg: leland vittert in jerusalem. thank you
of the island and here in the united states, the east coast is not out of play either. so let's get right to alexandra steel. she is at cnn hurricane headquarters. what can you tell us? >> it's not as bad as it could be for bermuda. bermuda sees hurricanes about three every ten years and it's moving farther east than we'd seen it before. this is the atlantic. we do have two hurricanes at play. there's leslie. here is michael. this is a category 2, it is small, tight, powerful. 105-mile-an-hour winds. good news, won't affect anyone, won't affect land. so with that, our attention turns to leslie. now, right now it's category 1, maximum sustained winds at 75 miles an hour. what's happened is it has sat over the same space, kind of the cold water for the last 18 hours or so. so we have not seen any intensification. so that is the good news. here is the projected path. now, you can see here is bermuda right now, it's about 430 miles south/southeast of bermuda, expected to make the past farther east than earlier thought sunday morning. so here are the impacts. this area east of haley fax cou ha
here in the united states of america. >> the problem with saying that these are good jobs is the facts don't seem to support it. some of of the jobs were temporary and paid for by the stimulus or perhaps census work or that sort of thing. so they did not last. and some of the jobs are not worth the jobs that we lost. a variety of studies say we lost more middle to upper income jobs an gained more lower level jobs. the simple truth is that the numbers may be technically correct in some of the claims, but when you look at all of the details, there is an awful lot more that needs to be seen. this is tom foreman, charlotte. >>> the b.t. founder bob johnson was not a fn of president obama four years ago, so what has actually changed? we will talk to him live in a moment. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ there's another way to help
for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,
by how scared the president of the united states looked, how disoriented he looked, how it seemed like they did not know where they were going. and i just want to do a hat tip right here, which, again, in this environment you probably aren't supposed to do. you know what? while george bush looked scared and disoriented that day, that day only, rudy giuliani stepped up. and he became america's mayor on that day. and he kept people advised of what was going on and was a great leader for that time. >> it was one of the great acts of spiritual and popular leadership that we'll ever see. and, you know, mayor giuliani is a big churchillian. but he was reading and looking at in those days and weeks a book by john lucash called "five days of may" in may of 1940 between churchill and chamberlain and halifax. and it was a marvelous case of leadership of being there. >> well, and like churchill and we're not comparing him to churchill, but for that time, though, like churchill, part of it was leadership, part of it was a great act. telling people, and by the way, that's what kept the british peop
made here in the united states. >> u.s. marines being called in as enforcements in been gone sea. >> the romney campaign already drafted a critical statement saying the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those that waged the attacks. here's the problem with that. the romney statement was sent to reporters just after 10:00 p.m. on tuesday with the caveat it not be released until after midnight. it was sent before many of the facts were gathered. the statement is wrong because the obama administrations official statement from the secretary of state released just before the romney statement reads like this. i condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in benghazi today. our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. but let me be clear there is never any justification for violent attacks of this kind pf clinton's statement does not sympathize. anybody that tells you it did is lying. if you believe it did, you are misguided. even a statement released ear

nation on earth. thank you. god bless you. and god bless these united states. >> geraldo: this is a fox news alert. despite the fact that bill clinton's speech was way better than the president's and despite the disappointing friday jobs report there is bad news for governor mitt romney. both big tracking polls published just this morning show the president gaining. gallup has obama up 45 to 49%. rasmussen has the polls up. about a bounce or paying attention. in. >> clearly a bounce going on for the president. it began the night after clinton gave his speech. clinton viewed positive by 66% of americans. he has helped the president in reshaping this. and right now we don't know how high the bounce will go or how long it will last but we do know is that democrats for the first time in this election cycle are just as excited about the election as republicans. >> geraldo: so how popular is bill clinton and isn't it inevitable that some of his mojo will rub off on one of his successors? >> well, he is very popular. and again, especially with those unaffiliated voters. the question of how muc

place where anyone would find any, you know, sort of satire or comedy. here in the united states, of course, we know that there are no -- there is nothing sacred. you know well, make fun of all religions and all people and things like that, and so i think, you know, there is a little bit of confliction, and i also think, randi, they might be confusing us with the european union because in many european countries there are laws which criminalize speech. for example, holocaust denial. maybe people think that, you know, there's a double standard in place here where muslim and muslims can be attacked with impunity, but other minority groups are protected. of course, there's a fwraet deal of ignorance there. >> just briefly, what do you say though those that say that muslim is not peaceful, but, many of the, violent in nature and mohammed is a warrior prophet. christian broadcaster pat robertson had this to say, for example. he said muslim is not a religion, but a violent political system. >> well, you know, pat robertson has also gone on record saying he wouldn't allow american hindu
